Bone metastases from prostate cancer are very common. They are usually located on the axial skeleton. However, cranial bone metastases especially to the parietal bone are rare. We report a case of metastatic prostate cancer presenting with left parietal bone metastasis in a patient with no urological symptoms or signs. We should consider prostate cancer in any man above 60 years presenting unusual bone lesions.

Introduction :
Prostate cancer is known to have high metastatic potential especially to the bone. Bone metastases are common and are osteoblastic in more than 95% [1]. They represent nearly 40% of secondary locations at diagnosis in Burkina Faso [2]. Metastases to the skull are rare and account for only 2% of secondary locations as reported in an autopsy series [3]. The base of the skull is the most affected. Clinical presentation depends on the location of the metastatic lesion and cranial nerve involved [4]. We report a case of occult prostate cancer presenting with skull metastatic......
